NAPLES, Fla. — Pulte Homes has hired an Executive Chef and a Food & Beverage Manager for the restaurant opening soon in the elegant new clubhouse at Greyhawk at Golf Club of the Everglades, its luxury golfing community in Naples.
Rich McCormick, president of Pulte in Southwest Florida, said Andrew Parfitt was named Executive Chef at the community located off of Vanderbilt Beach Rd., nine miles east of US-41 and Mercato.
McCormick said Parfitt graduated from renowned Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale, Ariz. and has 10 years of professional and nutritional experience. Chef Parfitt was brought on board at Greyhawk following stints as chef at Pelican Bay in Naples and The Landings in Fort Myers. Prior to moving to southwest Florida Parfitt was a chef at some notable restaurants in suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pa.
“Andrew’s background with luxury country club community restaurants as well as casual American cuisine makes him a perfect fit for the success of our signature restaurant at Greyhawk,” McCormick said.
At the same time, McCormick said Rogen Forbes was named Food and Beverage Manager. Forbes has 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry and was formerly head bartender at Sandals Resort in Ochos Rios, Jamaica. Most recently in Naples, Forbes served eight years at The Quarry Beach Club including four years as its food and beverage manager.
“Rogen has been a rising star in the food & beverage industry in Naples and we are delighted he is part of our new team. He possesses skills in all areas of restaurant food and beverage management from budgeting and event planning to team building,” McCormick explained.
The new clubhouse restaurant includes alfresco dining, full bar and gathering room with a fresh and contemporary design.
The mid-February restaurant opening at the multi-million dollar amenity complex was a highly-anticipated event at Greyhawk at Golf Club of the Everglades.
